Bambolim: India’s young technological wizard Harshwardhansinh Zala, who has developed a drone that detects and detonates landmines, feels that he can work on Robots that can help Indian Cricket Team fair better for World Cup.
The 16-year-old Chief Executive Officer of Aerobotics 7, a Defence and aerospace based tech organization, told the delegates at ongoing Goa Fest that Robotics can help Indian Cricket team fair better for World Cup.
“We can do that. We can work on censors which can see reflexes of player and probability where the ball can do,” the young wizard whose EAGLE A7 is amongst the many Indian innovations grabbing global attention.
“So, we can definitely help the Indian Cricket team,” he said during an interaction with the delegates.
Zala, who is currently a mentor in more than ten universities including IIT Mumbai, has developed prototype which can detect the landmine and detonate it too, without harming human lives.
“Currently, we completed sixth prototype, we are looking forward investment into the company. My only dream is to complete this project, give it to India and then to world society and make world a safe place,” he said.
Narrating his journey, Zala recalled how it all started when he was nine-year-old and the first innovation was in Home automation.
He said that later in July 2015, he saw video in which soldiers were detecting landmines and some of them for exploded, killing them.
Zala said that since he belonged to middle class family, he had no finance to work on the project for which he started teaching students of B Tech and M Tech, while he was in eight standard in school.
The Ahmadabad boy recalled how when he tried to approach some companies to work on the project, he was rejected and asked to complete his studies first before approaching them.
Zala, then, started his own company to work on the project. “I started working on the prototype, I was working on the robot. I started working on the drones. After learning all of this, I created some of the experiments, which can detect landmines,” he said.
His first prototype was a big failure. “I failed 17-18 times. Then completed second prototype which was a huge success,” he said.
Zala then showcased the prototype to the government and the Army. The young researcher is now working on sixth prototype which can “not only detect landmine but also destroy it without human life risk.”
